Badge - Human Resources MBABy HRMBA Staff

This is a list of the 50 most affordable human resources programs available at small colleges. “Small” for the sake of this article is defined as under 3,000 undergraduate students. The benefits of a small college are many and include strong relationships with professors, more individual attention, and smaller class sizes. Most small colleges are pricey private schools, but all the schools on this list have a tuition under $30,000 per year, and the cheapest are under $10,000. This list features a wide variety of schools, including private liberal arts schools, public universities, religious and non-sectarian institutions. Each entry lists the school, its location, a link to its website, a short description, and the tuition. The tuition posted here does not include room and board, travel, or living expenses, because those can vary from person to person.

Methodology

Data was gathered from IPEDS College Navigator and from individual school websites. Our initial pool of 194 institutions consisted of:

1) Accredited institutions offering a bachelor’s degree in human resources
2) Schools having enrollment of 3,000 or fewer undergrads

From these, we narrowed the pool to the 50 institutions with the lowest 2014-2015 tuition and fees; they are presented here in descending order of tuition and fees, with the least expensive school occupying the #1 spot in our ranking.

Human resource professionals walk a fine line as they are the custodians of both the company and the employees. Human resource professionals are involved in the hiring and firing processes, mediation between employees, mediation between the company and employees, labor relations, maintaining a safe work environment, and maintaining compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. Depending on the size of the company, an HR job may include one or all of the above roles. Regardless of what role you envision for yourself, there is very likely an HR course of study listed here that will be exactly what you need.
